I live in the Murupara / Galatea area and wondered if anyone has any information regarding the availability of RBI in this area. I currently use 3G mobile data for my internet which is costing far to much for what I am getting. For example, last month I spent $150 for 9gb of 3G data. I am currently registered with 2degrees and using the vodafone cell tower in Murupara for signal / connection. I have been in contact with Vodafone regarding the availability of RBI in this area and they have advised me that the new Vodafone cell tower that was put up in Murupara that services the mobile network is not the same tower that services the RBI network. They have taken my details and said they would notify me when the RBI service is available.

I am hoping to get on this service as soon as possible:


I intend to pay an extra $20 for the double data deal which would give me 30gb for $110 which is much more reasonable.

Hi Joe, I do RBI and fixed mobile broadband installs and can sort you out with a solution. Feel free to flick me a message or email with some contact details and address. I'll get back to you with some pricing.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

No ADSL? According to Chorus's map, Murupara has VDSL, Galatea can get ADSL?
